This is a Dockerfile/image to build a container for nginx and php-fpm, with the ability to pull website code from git when the container is created, as well as allowing the container to push and pull changes to the code to and from git.

Could you remove instruction VOLUME /var/www/html from the bottom of your docker file? Because it create following problem:

FROM richarvey/nginx-php-fpm
WORKDIR /var/www/html
COPY ./composer.json .
COPY ./composer.lock .
RUN composer install --no-scripts --no-autoloader
CMD while true; do sleep 1000; done

When you run above docker file the 'vendor' directory will NOT exists in '/var/www/html' (even you remove this composer instruction and try just to create file by touch somefile or dir mkdir somedir you will unable to do it)

This problem is related with this :

Application is getting broken with the latest version.

I used the docker image tag php7 and it worked. Not sure how the future going to be with PHP.

I agree with @touhid on that - it would be helpful to keep the php7 tag, and also the /var/log/php7/ folder so we can pip PHP logs to stderr with:
RUN ln -sf /dev/stderr /var/log/php7/error.log

Please keep the "php7" tag. Latest tag and "php7.1" is breaking some applications .

@majest also if you need to use a specific version take a look at: you'll see you can still use PHP 7.1.1 if you don't use the latest tag
